Benefits of Your WBOC Membership

WBOC offers benefits to women in business regardless of their background and current circumstances.  We have members who:

  • Are just starting their business (or maybe even just starting it in their mind!) -- or have years of experience as entrepreuneurs
  • Own their own business -- or are employed by a business

What we all have in common is a desire to learn, mentor and move up to the next level -- to become the best we can be.

In 2017, we are participating with WomenTies and WISE, acknowledging that women can be stronger and make greater strides by all working and supporting each other, and not staying in silos.  We also support the new CNY United Way initiative to support women.

Connections Meetings

Connections Meetings are an opportunity to get together with a small group of WBOC exclusive members led by a host over a “dutch-treat” lunch or breakfast for the purpose of establishing stronger professional relationships. 

This is an excellent opportunity to talk in more detail about yourself and your business to other members of WBOC.  This is by invitation-only and attendees are chosen through a drawing at our monthly programs.  

If you are selected, you will notified of the date, location and time.
